My first Aquarium

Postby suku_patel_22 » Sun Nov 27, 2016 6:38 am

Hello all,
I am from Mumbai and love to be here. This is my first Aquarium and here is my setup
1. Boyu MR 418 Aquarium with inbuilt water filter.
2. It is 15.6 inch wide, 9.8 inch deep and 15.3 inch high, 37L tank and filtration is 370L/hr.
3. I have added a 100w heater set at approx 26 degrees

The fishes I have are
1 Scat
2 Mono Angel
1 Electric Blue African Chichild
1 Rainbow African Chichild
1 Orange African Chichild

Please suggest if I need to make any changes

Welcome to the hobby.

You should research about the fish before putting them in tank together. African cichlids stocking should be higher. Plus they are very aggressive. They will kill other fish in the tank. They will need much more bigger tank than you currently have.

Same with the angel fish. Try to give it back to the fish store.

I have upgraded my tank to a Boyu EA 80 (148L). I have also added Eheim Classic 350 canister filter. I plan to have some Cardinals and bloodfin tetras.
